HILL AND CANADIAN AGREE.
Compromise In Content tor Territory Ih
SEATTLE. Wash.. May 20. (Special.)
The fight between the Canadian Pacific and
the Great Northern for control of British
Columbia territory has been compromised.
According to high railroad officials. Lord
Strathcona, who has money Invested In
both systems, brought about the compro
mise. The Great Northern will be permitted
to build Into Vancouver by way of Hope
Mountain, and the Canadian will have a
trackage agreement providing for the use
of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern and
Similklmecn branch of the Great Northern
to reach Its tracks at Hope. The Cana
dian is to withdraw all opposition to the
amendments the Hill Interests want to
the charter of the Victoria, Vancouver &
Neither of the roads give up any build
ing plans, but It is mutually agreed that
rates are to be protected in the future In
both Vancouver and Washington. The
agreement does not go far enough to pro
vide for a division of territory, but there
"will be no further reprisals.
J. J. Hill began the fight seven years
ago, when he built into Rossland and Nel
eon and projected his lines into the Slocan
and Boundary districts. The sharpest
fight, though, has been over the construc
tion of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern,
which enters into a district which both
roads have wanted in Southern British
Columbia and the northern tier of coun
ties In Washington.

THINKS ORDINANCE UNWISE
Proposed Method or Inspection of
3Ieats Is Declared Impractical.
PORTLAND. May 2L (To the Edltor.)
"We understand that a new ordinance has
recently been enacted by the Council,
which declares that all dressed calves,
hogs, tc, must be inspected by a new
official or set of officials ere they may
be offered for sale.
We are not aware as to whether or not
this hew measure has been signed by the
Mayor, but. with all due respect to the
members of the Council, we trust that it
has not. and we hope that it will not be
come a law. and on the grounds only that
It would be a useless measure and an
unnecessary burden on the people of the
City of Portland.
It is our understanding that all calves
sent In from the country killers to local
butchers or commission merchants must
be carted by the receiver to a certain
point and passed upon by the Inspector
or inspectors; that the heart, lungs and
liver must accompany each carcass, etc
If the heart, lungs and liver must still
be attached to the carcass, it -will in many
cases result In a damaged condition to
the meat, for it is customary to remove
everything, with the exception of the liver
(and in many Instances that also), that
the carcass may be thoroughly washed
We understand that after inspection the
carcass may be carted back to the shop
or store and offered for sale. It may sell
In a few minutes, and again it may be
some time ere a sale is effected. It may
be sold to a butcher in an hour and taken
by him to his shop, where it lies for days
and possibly spoils. We cannot see that
Inspection, as above described, has accom
plished anything except to remove from
the city treasury a certain fat salary or
number of salaries. We want it under
stood that we believe thoroughly in In
spection of meats and other food prod
ucts, but we believe that this ordinance
is an effort wrongly directed; that Inspec
tion should take place at the butcher shop
and at a time as close as possible to the
moment the meat Is delivered to the con
sumer. We are large handlers of veals and
dressed hogs, and If the ordinance be

verdict. Sentence will be passed on Mc
Bain at 1:30 o'clock Monday
The murderer made no demonstration
when the verdict was read, and aside from

nothing since yesterday noon, no trace of
emotion appeared in his face. When
Sheriff Blakely took him back to his cell
he remarked that he would rather hang
than be sentenced for life.
The trial of J. H. McBain for the mur

threats drove off two men who were
building a cabin for McBain.

that his claim had been jumped and
went out to the Trost brothers' camp.
He found the camp deserted for the time
being. Sunday morning McBain went
again to the camp. Soon afterward
Thomas Brady, who had located McBain
on the tract heard shots, and. In com
